Shearing show is also a special attraction. Sheep ranching nowadays can lure tourists, it’s a special attraction unlike before it’s just a livestock, raising some is much rewarding. I remember the stories of my grandma back to primitive. According to my grandma, ” wealth before is being judged by a number of cattle a person owned. Lol ! Nowadays is totally different….
Green Green Grassland stretches far and wide, it is an undeniable peaceful pasture and the sweetest I’ve ever experienced to bond with the flocks.
Splendid scenery fascinate all those who have experienced them.
The uphill climb stretches into a distance..
Beautiful lamb house and wall design. I love it!
The Sheep Shearing Machine Station , a place to shear-off the sheep coat. Without this machine, the sheep can cause to become overheated and die. It is also for their health and hygiene.
Equally fun and enjoyable to bond with my new friends down there…
Up- close and personal social relationship with the sheep. It was my first time to touch these animals perhaps, this would be my most unforgettable memories to bring home…
What you can see here is something I don’t usually get to do back home, feeding a sheep is fun.
At first, I was having a hard time to get their attention, they can’t keep still.
With too many sheep around, I’m uncertain if I can domesticate one in just a minute. What I need is a friendly one.
Wooo! to my surprise! It works! He’s so sweet and gentle but I can’t take the smell. The woolen fleece so thick and fluffy but it was too dry, rough and brittle.
This one I think, has a long overdue haircut !
How beautiful! It’s really a peaceful pasture.
How do you lure a sheep? Perhaps, Graham knows more than me…
Holding an animal feed to attract them.That’s it!
Using preferred food. He’s enjoying …
Being called-off bringing in one group . I was waiting for the guard dog to drive the sheep.

Looking for the shepherd boy to watch the flock of sheep and his master…. It’s a goodnight time for the herd.
